Question: Is that purusha in the heart?

Answer: If you mean the physical heart, it cannot be. But the books describe a heart which is an inverted lotus with a cavity inside and a flame in that cavity and all that. In such a psychic heart, the purusha may be said to abide and the flame may be of that angushtha pramana.

Question: Is seeing that light Self-realisation?
Answer: Abiding in it and being it, not seeing it, is Self realisation.

Question: What is the difference between sushupti ananda and turiya ananda?

Answer: There are not different anandas. There is only one ananda including the ananda enjoyed during the waking state, the ananda, of all kinds of beings from the lowest animal to the highest Brahma, the ananda of the Self. The bliss which is enjoyed unconsciously in sleep is enjoyed consciously in turiya. That is the difference. The ananda enjoyed during jagrat is upadhi ananda.

When you speak of a path, where are you now?
and where do you want to go? If these are known,
then we can talk of the path. Know first where you
are and what you are. There is nothing to be reached.
You are always as you really are. But you don’t realise it.
That is all.

All that we see is a dream, whether we see
it in the dream state or in the waking state.
On account of some arbitrary standards
about the duration of experience and so on,
we call one experience dream experience
and another waking experience. With
reference to Reality, both the experiences
are unreal.

Guru is not the physical form.
So the contact will remain even after
the physical form of the Guru vanishes.

D.: How long did it take Maharshi to realise the Self?

M.: This question is asked because the name and form are perceived. These are the perceptions consequent on the identification of the ego with the gross body.
If the ego identifies itself with the subtle mind, as in dream, the perceptions are subtle also. But in sleep there are no perceptions.
Was there not the ego still? Unless it was, there cannot be the memory of having slept
. Who was it that slept? You did not say in
your sleep that you slept. You say it now in your wakeful state. The ego therefore is the same in wakefulness, dream and sleep. Find
out the underlying Reality behind these states. That is the Reality underlying these. In that state there is Being alone. There is no you, nor I, nor he; no present, nor past, nor future. It is beyond time and space, beyond expression.It is ever there.

Posted this in comments section by mistake, hence reposting in the right thread


         





Everything we see is changing,
always changing.
There must be something
unchanging as the basis and
source of all this.

Simply draw the mind back each time
it strays and fix it in dhyana.

Dear Nagaraj,
    If you keep bringing back the mind each time it strays ... you will be Tired like that!
Instead .. Fix the reason the mind is Straying ...
and with just a few attempts it will "SIT" where it is supposed to "BE"

Harih OM!

Your own self-realization is the greatest service you can render the world.

Ocean of Nectar, Full of Grace,
Engulfing the Universe in Thy Splendour !
Oh, Arunachala — the Supreme self !
Be Thou the Sun, and open the Lotus of my Heart in Bliss,

Oh Arunachala !
In Thee the picture of the Universe
Is formed, has its stay and is dissolved.
This is the Sublime Truth.
Thou Art the Inner-Self,
who dancest in the Heart as 'I',
Heart is Thy Name, Oh Lord !
 
He who turns inward with untroubled mind
To search where the conciousness of 'I' arises
Realises the Self and rests in Thee,
Oh Arunachala !   like a river
when it joins the Ocean.

Abandoning the outer world,
with Mind and Breath Controlled,
To meditate on Thee within, the Yogi sees Thy Light,
Oh Arunachala !   and finds his delight in Thee !

He who dedicates his mind to Thee,
and seeing Thee always beholds the Universe as Thy figure;
He Who at all times Glorifies Thee
and loves Thee as none other than the Self,
 Triumphs – being One with Thee,
Oh Arunachala !immersed in Thy Bliss.

Sri Arunachala Pancharatnam.

Nothing can be more strange than this.
The Self is not attained by doing anything,
but remaining still and being as we are.

The tranquil clarity devoid of mental turmoil is the samadhi which is essential for Liberation. [Therefore] try earnestly to experience the peaceful consciousness, the clarity of heart, by destroying the deceptive turmoil [of mind].
